it still is not something i would want to smoke a lot but its nice to have once in a while
Black moassels are best when gently smoked like an Onyx cigar or a Western pipe. I've found it's best to linger and and wait at least 30 seconds between draws. If you smoke this sort of thing like you would Fantasia or something similar you'll miss out on all the flavours.
If you want try naturally flavoured moassels get Hookah-Hookah's cavendish (no, it doesn't taste like cavendish but it's very good anyway) or Salloum Plain. Cleopatra also makes a plain that is easy to get but I haven't tried it yet. The best naturally flavoured product you can buy in the states is Desi Merli but be warned it is strong. You will likely want to start out by mixing it 50/50 with H-H's cavendish or Honey made by H-H or AW. Once you've gotten the hang of it try smokin it straight. I've an article floting around here on how to smoke DM. Check it out.
